I am new here and looking to find anyone else that suffers from Summer SAD as myself. I have suffered for years, and it is only getting worse. Idk if it is age, or it is just getting hotter and hotter than hell in Alabama, but some days I feel like I just want to jump into an eternal flowing river just to cool off, and so what if I drown!! No, not really, I don't feel suicidal, but some days the panic attacks from the heat and not being able to see when I go out makes me feel like I am so trapped and have no where to escape. I actually love the outdoors, really I do! I just hate the heat with where I live. Idk if I will still feel a bad when we move somewhere cooler one day, I guess that will be a true test. But yes, we have a 3 year plan to get out last child out of high school, my husband finishing his degree, and we are outta here!!!! We are not sure where yet, but somewhere cooler is the obvious primary. I just wonder if there is anyone else out there that feels my pain and frustration? My friends, which are great people, they just still look at me like I have two heads when I turn down their brand new pool, or a lake/ beach trip. I don't even want to go shopping for the sheer reason I have to get in the heat and sun to and from the car to buildings. This is such a debilitating issue I sometime just hate myself bc I feel like my friends think I am being rude or something. Gosh, this is hard!
